Kronos

Kronos is an association of the history students at the Faculty of Arts, University of Helsinki. All History Majors are automatically members.

Kronos was founded in 1945, which makes it one of the oldest faculty organizations at the university. Currently there are about 500 more or less active Kronos members. Membership is free of charge.

What does Kronos do?

Of course, like all good student associations, Kronos arranges parties. It also organizes tutoring for new students, trips and excursions both in Finland and abroad, manages several sports teams and publishes the prize-winning quarterly Kronikka (unfortunately available in Finnish only).

On the more idealistic front, Kronos fights for its students’ rights at the University of Helsinki.
